Rafa the Misplaced pass Merchant
By JohnnyBlaze123, 27-05-2020

Hey guys, I'm a gold2/gold1 player usually. I got Gabriel in red picks so thought to maximise him lets get rafa to link him.

BIG MISTAKE.

I dont usually leave reviews for the good players or crap ones I've used but lord have mercy no one else should experience the pain of this tragic card.

Lets talk about his pace, easily his best trait. If there's a half decent RB on the other side forget about it his horrible physicality means as soon as he's touched he'll lose the ball


Now the real crux I have with this card is his passing...even on DEADEYE this man struggles to make a pass with his strong foot, it's like he's in pain anytime he has to kick the ball so it goes extra slow and it's almost always, intercepted. Usually leading to a counter attack for my opponent so it's just messed up everything.

His shot is okay from close range but any ideas of a finesse outside the box or power shot? forget about it, like i said it seems like he has feet filled with air and not bones so the power nowhere to be seen.


Now i'm a decent player, if this guy ever made smart runs he'd be sort of usable you know but as a LAM i'm telling you people he is LOST. Doesn't know where to run or how to captalise on space he's literally useless.

I then tried him for 10 games at CAM/ST, my goodness if i could count how many times this man lost the ball he can't shield the ball from anyone! Don't play him down the middle as useless as he is, play him on the left.

I got gold 1 this weekend by having to sub out this man 30 minutes into each game, he became a handicapp more than anything, i've tried every single chemstyle with him on rivals to try 'fix' him.

It wasn't possible, he's a lost cause, just HORRIBLE.



Please my fifa people, save yourself the trouble and do not buy him. Honestly I can't believe he was a solid 170k for a whole week once base gold Neres plays better than him and that's saying a lot

Can run fast in a straight line

Decent shot from inside the box

Close dribbling is okay

Can't shield of attacker the ball whilst running

Can't make short passes

Can't make long passes

Doesn't make smart runs

his 99 pace feels 'weird'

Can't shift defenders

Doesn't have a strong finesse shot

Weak foot is garbage

Unreal

Well what can i say this guy is honestly one of the best players I've used. After using him in 10 games of div 4 rivals he came out with 12 goals and 12 assists. His card fits the meta perfectly and he feels rapid in game . He is a bargain

Meta king

I had the opportunity to fit him in my starting eleven, and I saw some reviews about saying he was pretty decent, so I tried him out before weekend league. I am a gold 2 player, but after playing 10 games with Rafa, I am convinced I will reach gold 1, or even an elite 3. There is something that makes him better than other wingers, apart from the fact that he has amazing stats. His positioning is one of the best I have seen ...

Quality

Used this card last week for the weekend league and in terms of value for money he is one of the best LW/LM's in FUT. I managed to fit him into my team by strong linking with Grimaldo (who is also a beast) and played him at LM in a 4-4-2(2). In this formation the wide players don't get involved too much in terms of shooting, but when the ball dropped to him every now and then he would s...
